Flying can really take the life out of our skin. The combination of pressure and varying temperatures can draw the moisture out of your complexion and leave you looking a little less than radiant by the time you land. In some cases, particularly during long-haul flights, your skin can also be left puffy, severely dehydrated and irritated.

To help keep your skin looking its best during your flight and ready for when you step off the plane, we have selected six products that we think you need in your in-flight skincare routine.

6 in-flight skincare essentials

yes to Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Wipes

Gently cleansing your skin is the first thing you should do after take off. Easy to use and compact, the yes to Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Wipes effortlessly cleanse and revitalise the skin with a blend of Aloe Vera, Cucumber and Green Tea. Simply wipe over your complexion to eliminate dirt, impurities and any traces of makeup.

ESPA Balancing Herbal Spafresh Spritzer

A refreshing spritz is an essential on flights, no matter how long or short. Refreshing and revitalising the skin in one simple step, they add much needed hydration and soothe irritation with ease. The ESPA Balancing Herbal Spafresh Spritzer combines Witch Hazel and Elderflower to maintain your skin's natural pH and works as both a refreshing mist and a toner.

If you're pregnant...

Flying can be particularly stressful and difficult is you're pregnant. If you are expecting, swap your spritz for the Mama Mio Way to Glow Facial Spritz which hydrates the skin, leaves a lit-from-within glow and uplifts the senses to calm your skin and mind.

STARSKIN Hydrating Coconut Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Face Mask

Quench your skin and infuse your complexion with intense hydration as you fly with the STARSKIN Hydrating Coconut Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Face Mask. Mess-free and so easy to apply, the Bio-Cellulose mask adheres perfectly to the contours of your face to ensure optimum effectiveness.

With vitamin-rich Coconut Juice, Amino Acids and Brown Algae, it leaves skin smooth, supple and glowy. Apply, leave on for 20-25 minutes and massage the rest of the serum into your skin.

Rodial Dragon's Blood Eye Mask

Calm puffy, irritated eyes just before your step off your flight with the Rodial Dragon's Blood Eye Mask. Working to tone, refresh and revive the appearance of tired, dry eyes, the mask infuse the skin with hydration to leave you looking instantly more awake. With Arnica Extract to brighten and Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate and minimise the appearance of fine lines, they're an early morning flight essential.

Clinique Moisture Surge Lip Hydro-Plump Treatment

Dry lips are sore and are often made worse in the heat so protecting your lips from moisture loss when flying is crucial. Deeply conditioning and smoothing, the Clinique Moisture Surge Lip Hydro-Plump Treatment delivers intense hydration and prevents your lips from drying out as you fly. Apply a generous layer as a lip mask to keep your pout plump and super soft.
